Are We Back In It?

It's hard to believe, but the Dodgers may be playing themselves back into a possible wild card berth.

Who'd have thought that was possible? Just as I was about to slip away into the summer heat they reach out and pull me back in.

Even stranger, this sudden turn of events may mean that Manny may be going nowhere. If he can turn it on and lift our meager offense for one last push Colletti may refuse to let go of the dread-locked aging slugger.

Per Tim Brown:
While Ramirez was working his way through the waiver procedures, the Los Angeles Dodgers were playing themselves to the edge of National League wild-card contention, meaning general manager Ned Colletti might want to see more before pulling the trigger on a trade.

A calf injury pushed Ramirez’s appearance on the waiver wire to Wednesday. But, as a result, the Dodgers won’t have to make a decision – whether to pull Ramirez back, trade him or award a team its claim (for about $4 million) – until as late as Tuesday, if they choose. A player acquired before Sept. 1 is eligible for the playoffs.

  1. If there ever was a time to get back into the wild card race it is now. They are about to play a three game series against Colorado. Taking two out of three would be nice.
